Silver Linings

It is 2 days post surgery and thanks to a combo of pain meds, not moving, and soft food I am doing ok. My neck hurts. Duh. :)

I have had some time to think of some silver linings regarding this surgery (other than finding out if I have cancer).

1) The scar. I am now the proud owner of a scar across the front of my neck. And while I could just tell people the truth about my scar if asked about it. However, I think I could come up with a better story. Like a knife fight. After all, I totally look like the type of person who would get in a knife fight. Or maybe a bear attack. I may alternate between both stories.

2) Possible voice lose. Unfortunately for everyone, I can still talk. But there could be some damage to one of my vocal chords. I haven't tested my singing voice yet. But if I do kind of sound raspy when I sing, I have decided I will quit my engineering job and become a singer. Since Amy Winehouse died, there is an opening in the music world for a replacement. I will keep you posted.

3) Jeffrey got a Jamba Juice gift card in his stocking and last night he told me he wanted to use it to buy me a smoothies this morning. I told him he didn't need to use it on me and he said, "No Nat. I really want to do this." And he did! How cute is that?

4) My mother-in-law has made me 3 different kinds of soup and they are all homemade and delicious. I will have to get recipes and share them. Plus she made custard. It is Southern and yummy.

5) Since none of my food requires chewing, I am considering them calorie-free. Makes sense, right?

Ok I have actually lost my train of thought for this post, so I had better go. Thank you for the prayers. So far so good. I go back next Thursday to find out about the pathology.

Love, Mrs. Janney
